Evelyn Koshnitsky Tournament for Girls – Wk 4 T4 2018 – a great NEW excursion

November 9, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm


Girls Only Tournament – Friday 9th November 2018

Friday Week 4 – 9:30am – 12:30pm

Proudly supported by The Evelyn Koshnitsky Memorial Trust.  

This event is played during school time – the Friday morning in week 4. Any number of students are welcome from a school – whole classes or individual students. This event though is intended for Girls only – the following week is an Open Tournament for Boys and Girls – and is aimed at greatly increasing the participation of girls in chess. We want girls to feel confident that they can and will be the boys when they play – and simply need a bit of practice. Similar events in Melbourne attract 150 girls – we would love to do the same!

Cost: Just $10 per student

Venue: The Chess Centre, 10 Ranelagh St. Adelaide 5000

Primary and Secondary – prizes for different year levels.

The Chess Centre will be open from 8:30am to allow parents to drop off their students before work.

The students will play 5 or 6 games and learn how a tournament is run, discover the use of chess timers and have lots of fun.

Depending on the numbers, there will be separate tournaments for Primary and Secondary and probably separate year Levels.

The students can be beginners or experts and can be any year level.

To register your students, please contact Alan Goldsmith on 0401 672 481 or email alang@knightsandbytes.com.au with your list of students by Wednesday 7th November

 Mrs Evelyn Koshnitsky BEM devoted her life to chess and was Secretary of the SAJCL for about 50 years. And during that time, she was responsible for encouraging thousands of juniors and adults taking up the game in South Australia and across the Country. Evelyn’s influence on everyone was profound and wonderful. She was constantly creative, smart and organised. She produced bulletins, magazines, set up National Championships, International Tournaments and much more. Her real passion however was for Girls’ and Women’s chess – she would do anything to have them playing. This tournament is in a small way a tribute to Evelyn and we hope it is a success.
